Instruction how to stick to the ceiling moldings
Select Ceiling plinth plinth made of light materials - polyurethane or foam. Note the size of granules from which compressed product. It is not necessary to use textured trim strips - bumps are visible even after painting. Stock up on a smooth material from the same batch.
Calculate the material for this first measure the perimeter of the room. Taking into account that the polyurethane moldings produced 2 meters long, calculate the number of strips required. Round the value obtained in a big way. Allow 1-2 of spare parts in case of errors when cutting or breakage during installation.
Take a look at the layout room, what is the length plinth will look better on your ceiling. Estimate the location of baseboards to avoid compounds pieces of varying lengths. It is better to make the docking of two medium than two meters and short intervals - long plinth on uneven wall may break.
Cut the plinth carefully sectioned ends of the plinth, the joints in the corners. Check the angle at which converge in the room wall. For example, if it is 90 degrees, the pencil mark cutoff line at an angle of 45 degrees. Use for cutting miter box - a device that controls the accuracy of the cut. Make the cut lines on the layout of the blanks.
Apply glue for fixing the plinth are various substances: liquid nails, silicone or acrylic sealants, polymer-alcoholic glue. Take for adhesive polymer-based - it forms a strong waterproof seam drying after 30-40 minutes. Apply glue to baseboard on two surfaces: from the ceiling and the wall side. Try to make the strips without sagging. The tube can be slightly warmed on the radiator or in the sun - glue become more plastic and more even lie down on the bar.
Glue the plinth gently apply to clean and dry the surface of the baseboard, trying it with the angle, and then tear off. Allow the glue to dry for 2-3 minutes and again push to the intended place. To press is not necessary, because the material is soft and it will remain on the finger dent. When a joint is ready, take the next workpiece and glue to the first. Coming to the other wall, first measure the distance to it, prepare the bar for the desired length, and then cut the corner on it. Do not try to repeat the curved surface contour - the plinth should only go in a straight line. The next day zashpaklyuyte all joints and wall connection and cut off the excess glue.
